Strong and Brave An Edge Night on Female Saints About This Night This Edge Night begins with a Gather where the girls will have time to color a beautiful coloring page and have a brief discussion. The Proclaim explains what it means to be holy and gives the girls five examples of female saints whose paths to holiness began at a very young age. The Break gives the girls a chance for discussion as well as an opportunity to lift one another up in affirmations. The Send ends the Edge Night with the example of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Magnificat prayer. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is for the middle school girls to see that they are not too young to live lives of holiness as well as to inspire them with the stories of a few female saints. Scripture Luke 1:46 -55 Key Concepts – Jesus calls us to “… be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:48). – Holiness means that we are set apart, that we choose to do God’s will above all else even if that means not doing some things that we may want to do, and trusting that God’s plans are always better. – You are not too young to aim for holiness in your everyday life. In fact, there are many saints whose journeys to holiness started at a young age. – The example of St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Hedwig, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, St. Maria Goretti, and St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross reveal to us the great joy and fulfilment that comes in following Christ.
